Splice Machine Raises $15M Series B to Power Real-Time Big Data Applications

InterWest Partners and Mohr Davidow Ventures invest in the only real-time SQL-on-Hadoop database

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Splice Machine, provider of the only transactional real-time SQL-on-Hadoop database for Big Data applications, today announced the closing of its $15M Series B round of funding. The investment is led by InterWest Partners, along with returning Series A investor Mohr Davidow Ventures (MDV).

The investment will enable the Company to accelerate its product development and expand its sales and marketing team in preparation for its upcoming public beta offering in Q1 2014. With its real-time, transactional architecture, Splice Machine moves Hadoop beyond batch processing to power real-time operational and analytical applications.

"Unlike any other SQL-on-Hadoop database, only Splice Machine supports real-time, ACID-compliant updates for both operational and analytical applications on standard Hadoop distributions," said Bruce Cleveland, General Partner, InterWest Partners. "With its lockless transactional architecture, Splice Machine fills a critical gap in the SQL-on-Hadoop market."

Splice Machine received its first round of funding from MDV in October 2012. Since then, the Company has tripled its staff, engaged with over 10 charter customers, received multiple accolades, and delivered a limited product release where more than 50 enterprises validated use cases, tested SQL coverage and benchmarked performance.

Splice Machine delivers significant increases in query performance and steep reductions in hardware and software costs for its charter customers. For example, initial results against Oracle databases have shown a 10x increase in price/performance by decreasing response times by 30-50% on significantly less expensive hardware.

"For companies that want to leverage the cost and scaling advantages of Hadoop, they can finally replace traditional relational databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Oracle with Splice Machine because it is a real RDBMS on Hadoop," said Monte Zweben, co-founder and CEO, Splice Machine. "We're confident that this next round of funding will enable us to revolutionize the Hadoop marketplace by powering real-time operational and analytical applications."

"We are excited to double down on our Splice Machine investment," said Bill Ericson, General Partner, MDV. "Now companies that are experimenting with Hadoop can gain significant value from those deployments. We are impressed with the company's progress since its Series A funding, as it has built a seasoned team, a first-of-its-kind product, and a strong voice in the market."

Splice Machine is the only full-featured SQL database on Hadoop with real-time updates and ACID transactions. It provides application developers and database architects the best of Big Data: the scalability of Hadoop and HBase, the ubiquity of SQL, and the transactional integrity of an RDBMS.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not.

The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of I...
